In memoriam – Brenda Thomas
It is with deep sadness that Pontypridd RFC reports the passing of a dedicated club servant over many decades – Brenda Thomas.
Brenda was the ‘first lady’ of a family that contributed so much to the club, her husband, the late Cenydd Thomas being a former player, coach and official, her son David co-ordinating the medical set-up, her daughter Sian for many years prominent with the Supporters’ Club and her grand-daughter Caitlin involved with the media team.
Ponty supporters will of course fondly remember Brenda very much in her own right as a club volunteer, not least as a leading light amongst the formidable crew of ‘Tea Ladies’ working diligently from the hut at the end of the Riverside Terrace.
The thoughts of everyone at Pontypridd RFC will now be with Brenda’s family in their time of grief. The family have indicated that sometime in the future, when the current crisis has lifted, a gathering will be arranged at the club to pay a fitting tribute to Brenda Thomas, celebrating her life and her contribution.
